We did not experience any acceleration or separation. The mixture quickly became an emulsion but took a little longer than usual to come to a thin trace. The batter did turn to a bright honey mustard yellow once it was at trace. After 24 hours the color was a dark mustard yellow. The scent was a little light, but smelled amazing. The soap only reached a partial gel but still overheated through the center. After 30 days the color is a dark chocolate brown and the scent is deliciously strong.

*Note - This fragrance was tested at a 5% fragrance load. With the release of IFRAs 49th Amendment this fragrance can now be used at 3.61% to remain IFRA compliant.

One of my favorite Candlescience fragrance oils! 10/10 cold throw and hot throw. Nice sweet caramel scent without being too sweet. Even my kids loved it.


Wonderful sweet, warm fragrance. It could almost pass for the smell of fresh cookies baking! These candles will make great Christmas gifts.


Love it!

I've been at trial and error with candles for almost a year now. The candle I made with this was by far the best I've EVER made. HT and CT were both great. When lit, it filled the entire room and hallway. It also didn't take long at all to fill up the room. Used in IGI 6006 wax. 10/10 recommend. This scent is so sweet and yummy.

Hobbyist - Love this Scent

I love this scent. I could see it being a best seller or something I have at every craft show like pumpkin soufflé, blueberry cobbler, hazelnut coffee, peppermint mocha or cranberry apple marmalade/apple maple & bourbon. It is a smell I can see folks using on a daily basis, not one that is a special occasion scent, although I'd say it is best for December and January.

Literally amazing, not even over exaggerating. Filled my whole room and hallway, CT is 10/10 and the HT is 100/10. Used with IGI 6006 wax.

New Candle Maker


This is SUCH a good scent! I will definitely be adding it to my Christmas line and honestly may have it year round because holy cow it's sooooo good! I can definitely smell the caramel notes! Made a fairly small candle with it and it filled almost my whole apartment!


I love the smell of creme brûlée, but this smells nothing like it. The description says it has notes of caramelized sugar, coconut, custard, rum, vanilla, maple, and benzoin. They got the sugar part right, but caramelized? Not at all. No hint of coconut, vanilla, or custard, whatsoever. Rum? Maybe, since rum is pretty sweet. Maple? There are two syrup notes–cough syrup and a hint of cheap grocery store syrup (think Aunt Jemima). I’ve never smelled pure benzoin, so I can’t comment on that one. But to me, it smells cloying and medicinal. If cough syrup came in a sugar-butter flavor, it’d smell just like this fragrance oil.

Definitely recommend

This is one of my favorite fragrances from this site. The HT is really strong but not overwhelming and it's a very clean vanilla scent. You can't go wrong with it.



I don't think I'll ever be able to use another vanilla scent, this one is just so strong and poured beautifully. Haven't burned it yet, but the cold throw is on point.



One of the best fragrances there is! Amazing CT and HT in 464 Soy wax! Decadent and classy. The only thing is the bottle was not full, 10-15 % was missing. I checked for the leaking and there was no any. The same happened with few other fragrances.

Hi there! We're so happy to hear you're liking the Creme Brulee fragrance oil. We fill our fragrance oil bottles by weight, so the fill levels may vary a bit. Be sure to weigh your fragrance oils on a scale for the most accurate measurement!

Hoped it would be good

Thank goodness I only ordered 1oz to try. I had hoped for a light vanilla bean with a sugary overtone, but no matter how much I dilute this scent I can’t seem to stomach it. Actually makes me nauseated to work with, and I’m not sure how I would even describe it to the nose. Needless to say I’ll be on the lookout for a different dessert fragrance.


My house smells Gooooooooooood!!!!!

I love how this scents has my house smelling like I'm downstairs My husband loves the smell. He walked in the door from work and asked me was I baking. (((Smell)))


One of my Favorite Scents

I love the smell of this scent!!!!


Candle Maker

Awesome. Top seller. Never disappoints with CT or HT. Use 8% in 464. Also blends well with others.


Smells like curry?

Am I the only one who thinks this smells like curry mixed with butterscotch? I can’t get over it. I came upstairs from making candles and my husband asked me what I was making that smelled like curry. So yeah...I am not selling this batch of candles.



I could praise this scent all day long! I could not be more happy with this! I used it in my wax melts and named it Caramel Cupcake. It's delicious, beautiful, and so sweet! Can't say enough good things.


I am brand new to candle making and have so much to learn but one thing I do know is that this scent smells so delicious! It fills the room with a warm Sunday afternoon baking smell. It's nice and strong but not overpowering. Makes you feel warm and cozy and HUNGRY for creme brulee'


the boss

Fantastic scent!!! Not too sweet, not chemical-smelling at all. Just lovely (and I'm very sensitive to scents).

Kathy Hurley

Best scent

This is a crowd favorite. I use 10% oil in my batch and the throw is great! This is my favorite of the bakery scents.


Best Seller

Our best seller! Everyone seems to love this one- sweet and buttery. I'll get asked if I'm baking when this one is lit.

Let is cure for a week

At first I thought it was not good. After a week I smelled it again and it's lovely now. It's a light vanilla scent. I used soy.


Sooo good

I never review any of the fragrances I choose, and I never thought I’d actually like a bakery scent but THIS creme brûlée is EVERYTHING! Perfect for your fall collection. Hot throw is outstanding and cold throw is decent. I’m now ordering ANOTHER bottle for my candles. Best seller for sure!

Regina- Owner of Her Joy


Will definitely re-order!

Smells amazing with hot and cold throw! Nice and strong and it hits you in the face with a warm vanilla, and then follows up with caramel notes. I think I’m just going to make it my vanilla. It’s so perfect.


You'll want to reorder this one

This scent was perfect. Made my kitchen smell like I was baking up a storm.

Sweet Scents

Candle Maker

I’m normally a huge fan of sweet bakery type scents. Banana Nut Bread, and Bluberry Cobbler, are a couple of my all time favs... But this FO is CLOYINGLY sweet and extremely strong! Tried mixing it with a softer fruit FO to tone down the sweetness and it totally overpowered the fruit scent when burned. Never thought I’d say this, but I wish it were a bit more subtle. Used it in 6046 @ 9% and was completely overwhelmed.

Mix Master


okay, wow! this FO hits it out of the park. It's not a very strong smell - in CP soap after curing for a couple weeks I was having to really take some deep whiffs, but the smell that you do get is incredible. very delicate vanilla scent, it just smells absolutely heavenly. I wish it was stronger but I will probably just put more in next time. not overpowering with the rum or burnt sugar notes, i just smell lovely vanilla custard and this is probably one of my favorite smells ever.


Not my favorite

If you like really deep, strong, sweet scents, this is for you! I thought it would be softer...

Cynthia F.

Smells Fantastic!

It smells soooo good, I maxed wax melts and while I was waiting for them to cool, I could smell it all through the house! So good.

The Luxe Siren Apothecary

So good!

My customers LOVE this scent! It pleases everyone who prefers rich, bakery scents. It is a very strong scent that will fill multiple rooms with it's deliciousness!

New Candlemaker, this is wonderful!

I've made over a dozen candles (still working on making labels to sell) and this scent is the best. All of the scents I have are good (Snickerdoodle, Apples and Maple bourbon, Strudel and spice, and cinnamon and vanilla) I keep going back to the Creme Brulee and smelling it, it's so wonderful. Even my husband likes it so I know it's good lol. It reminds me of walking into my moms house when I would go to visit her (She always had candles burning) My mom has passed away so smelling this makes me remember the warm feeling I used to get visiting her :) Thank you Candlescience :) I'm sure once I have everything ready for my candles to sell that this will be a best seller, especially here in Michigan where walking into a warm yummy smelling house from the freezing cold is the best.

Candle making beginner

I absolutely love this fragrance. Great fragrance when cold and hot. I used the 444 wax, melted at 185, added fragrance oil at 140 and poured candle at 103 into glass jars. Very excited about candle making looking forward for some sales.

Awesome scent

This one is very popular and has a delicious, warm and sweet scent. Cold throw is great and it really fills the room. Love it.

Candles by Terri

Wow this is yummy

You really hit the nail on the head with this one everyone loves it smells like what can I say crème brûlée definitely a must try

Scarlett Lites

I got the creme brulee discontinued version before I got this one and there is definitely a difference between the two. The discontinued version is definitely better, its more Creme. This new version had a more burnt smell to it and I definitely dont like it as much.


Yum, smells like buttered rum

Love! Smells like the discontinued buttered rum, which was popular among customers.


Wow! Creme Brulee is awesome! Fantastic cold and hot throw in my 464 soy candle! I'll be ordering a big bottle of this next time. I predict this will be a customer favorite!
